Englewood Cliffs NJ,  according to Palisades Interstate Parkway Police a 7 am fall off the cliffside left a man hurt near the Palisades Interstate Parkway where he’d tried taking photographs Friday morning.

Rescue teams including the East Bergen Rappel Team were dispatched to Englewood Cliffs where the Connecticut man had stopped at  a Mobil Service Station off the parkway to snap photos, highway police said.

After falling about 60 feet because, he  “lost his footing” and slid down the edge of the cliff face, officials said.

Responding officers were able to make verbal contact with the man, who is from Manchester Connecticut, and sent rescue teams rappelling down the cliffside to bring him back up. He was then transported to  Hackensack University Medical Center by AirMed One, which landed at Witte Field in Englewood Cliffs for treatment.
